With solar panels and skylights, bamboo shelving and biofuels, the idea was to “take a Whole Foods market, and shrink it down to the size of a 7-Eleven.”A Good News Network fan submitted the story link and said a friend of theirs stopped in to the store yesterday, the second customer for Don Bently, owner of Bently Biofuels Outpost.“She was told that if there was anything natural that she would normally get from a health food store or order online, just to let them know and they will order it for her… so we’re very excited.”(Read more in the Record Courier)AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

Horizon Lines terminates five ship charter agreements

first_imgThe companies said that the deal will offer Ship Finance, the owner and operator of the 2,824 teu container ships that were built in Korea in 2006, warrants exercisable into ten percent of the common stock of the restructuring Horizon Lines, Inc and USD40 million in second lien notes.”Ship Finance will become a large stakeholder in the restructured Horizon Lines and expects to benefit from both the interest on the notes as well as the value of securities received,” said the chief executive of Ship Finance Management AS, Ole B. Hjertaker.”The redelivery of the five vessels to Ship Finance will enable Horizon Lines to focus entirely on its core domestic U.S Jones Act container market, and Horizon Lines should be well positioned to deliver positive results going forward,” Hjertaker said.Charlotte-based Horizons Lines says it has completed transactions with over 99 percent of its noteholders that will slash USD188.4 million worth of the shipping company’s debt.”The significant deleveraging resulting from these transactions greatly improves the company’s cash flow and liquidity, allowing for greater financial flexibility and stability,” said Michael T.

Yes, it appears the Browns interest in the quarterback who is reportedly going to get released by the Buffalo Bills is real, as Jason La Canfora of CBS reports the Browns very much have their eyes on Taylor. League sources said the Browns have significant interest in Taylor as a free agent. Taylor has strong ties to some on the Browns staff already and if/when he hits the open market I would be shocked if the Browns don’t make a real push for him. Many in the league believe that’s where he will end up — he’s young and athletic and protects the football and has upside. That would allow the Browns to take the two best players available with their two first-round picks — beginning with Myles Garrett first overall. The Browns also continue to try to push to retain pending free agent receiver Terrelle Pryor to have some weapons for the new QB.It was reported on February 8th by La Canfora that the Arizona Cardinals could be another team in the mix for Taylor, but with the Browns need for a quarterback, expect them to make a big push for the signal caller.Last season with the Bills Taylor threw for 3035 yards, 20 touchdowns and six picks, and also ran for 580 yards and six scores.He’s 14-14 in his career as a starter, and was 7-8 last season as starter for the Bills before being sat for the final game of the season so he would avoid injury and the team wouldn’t have to pay a huge insurance claim if he was hurt according to reports. If the Browns do get Taylor on the roster, you have to wonder what the future will hold for Robert Griffin III. last_img read more
